Default Possibility of Night Maps?

Dunno if the Vietnam Devs have talked about it but I know that the V.C always took advantage of the night against the American G.Is to assault bases and sabotage equipment. It would be pretty cool to have a map like that if were only flares allowed you to see in the dark, as NVGs were not distributed to every soldier back then. Again, I am only saying ideas that would be good on paper, cause if you remember Bi Ming in 0.6 when it was night time, it was rather horrid to play on with all the hardware/shader issues with Nvidia cards. Hopefully, this problem can be fixed. Anyway, what do you think?

there are no nightmaps in PR since there are problems with the BF2 engine that can not be fixed, this is why i guess, there will be no nightmaps in PR:V as well

but then again the problem would be, that people tune their monitors for better view and so on, I still think, nightmaps sound great, but they are simply no fun

Bi Ming with the bugged NVG Shaders was fun.. I see no reason why not?

Afaik there where very few instances of a passive night vision system being used,wich is nowhere close near the current NVG's,and would not be worth inplementing

This comes pretty close to night imo.

same is said for some of PR's darker maps such as Fools road.

If night maps come to PR:V they must obviously NOT be pitch black, however there is a very nice full moon sky texture which allows the gameplay to continue with impaired vision, but more importantly - the night time ambiance.

done properly a night map would be excellent, done badly it would fail miserably.

Fortunately for PR:V it is very very easy to convert maps to night, and could even be done using only server.zips probably, so theres lots of scope.
